Warner Bros. has released 19 new images from Jonathan Liebesman‘s Clash of the Titans sequel, Wrath of the Titans. The sequel has the gods calling on Perseus (Sam Worthington) to help defeat the titans. The whole “Release the Kraken” thing from the first movie was just a big misunderstanding. Gods and Perseus are cool now. The images provide a first look at the great Edgar Ramirez (Carlos; check it out) as Ares. He’s no Kratos, but Ramirez still looks like a quality god of war.
Hit the jump to check out the images. The film also stars Rosamund Pike, Toby Kebbell, Ralph Fiennes, and Liam Neeson. Wrath of the Titans opens in 3D on March 30th.
Here’s the official press release for Wrath of the Titans:
A decade after his heroic defeat of the monstrous Kraken, Perseus (Worthington) –the demigod son of Zeus (Neeson)–is attempting to live a quieter life as a village fisherman and the sole parent to his 10-year old son, Helius. Meanwhile, a struggle for supremacy rages between the gods and the Titans. Dangerously weakened by humanity’s lack of devotion, the gods are losing control of the imprisoned Titans and their ferocious leader, Kronos, father of the long-ruling brothers Zeus, Hades (Fiennes) and Poseidon (Danny Huston). The triumvirate had overthrown their powerful father long ago, leaving him to rot in the gloomy abyss of Tartarus, a dungeon that lies deep within the cavernous underworld. Perseus cannot ignore his true calling when Hades, along with Zeus’ godly son, Ares (Edgar Ramirez), switch loyalties and make a deal with Kronos to capture Zeus. The Titans’ strength grows stronger as Zeus’ remaining godly powers are siphoned, and hell is unleashed on earth. Enlisting the help of the warrior Queen Andromeda (Rosamund Pike), Poseidon’s demigod son, Argenor (Toby Kebbell), and fallen god Hephaestus (Bill Nighy), Perseus bravely embarks on a treacherous quest into the underworld to rescue Zeus, overthrow the Titans and save mankind.
